Kathy Schrock: The complete guide to picking the right device for every grade level

Kathy Schrock: The complete guide to picking the right device for every grade level | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
The Apple App Store is full of well-vetted and useful software. When you hear “there is an app for that,” it seems to be true! From content-based applications that can be used for everything from remediation to enrichment, and apps that let students create videos, audios, simulations, infographics and more, the use of the iPad to support teaching and learning is truly remarkable. But the iPad really shines as a one-to-one device. Personalization, choice of apps and work that lives locally on the device make students feel connected with their iPad.

Kathy Schrock is an expert with deep experience and insight. Following her advice is a great way to find what you need!

Managing Your Digital Classroom with Wearable Technology (EdSurge News)

Managing Your Digital Classroom with Wearable Technology (EdSurge News) | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

On a typical day, there are three stations in my classroom: a teacher station where I conduct small group instruction, a collaborative station where students work cooperatively to complete a task, and a work station where students work independently to complete asynchronous tasks. With three distinct groups working simultaneously, one might wonder how a can teacher respond to each and every student misunderstanding.

My answer: the Pebble.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

The Pebble has a sort of retro-nerd look that you'll either love or hate.  This clever blog will help any teacher on the move in a 1 to 1 classroom. Now what else can we use it for?

Life of an Educator by Justin Tarte: 5 tips for starting BYOD in your district

Life of an Educator by Justin Tarte: 5 tips for starting BYOD in your district | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

In my district we embarked upon a journey at the beginning of the 2012/2013 school year. Our goal was to enhance our current instructional practices by finding new ways of infusing technology into the educational setting with the hope of preparing our students for the ever-changing world. Additionally, we wanted our graduates to have the skills necessary to compete on a global scale while providing them a relevant, purposeful, and meaningful K-12 learning environment.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Mobile learning continues to grow at an amazing pace. Bring your own device is the fuel for the fire.

10 Real-World BYOD Classrooms (And Whether It’s Worked Or Not) | Edudemic

10 Real-World BYOD Classrooms (And Whether It’s Worked Or Not) | Edudemic | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Posted by Katie Lapi

 

"With budgets tight, many schools are hoping to bring technology into the classroom without having to shell out for a device for each student. A solution for many has been to make classes BYOD (short for “bring your own device”), which allows students to bring laptops, tablets, and smartphonesfrom home and to use them in the classroom and share them with other students.

 

"It’s a promising idea, especially for schools that don’t have big tech budgets, but it has met with some criticism from those who don’t think that it’s a viable long-term or truly budget-conscious decision.

 

"Whether that’s the case is yet to be seen, but these stories of schools that have tried out BYOD programs seem to be largely positive, allowing educators and students to embrace technology in learning regardless of the limited resources they may have at hand."

BYOD in the 21st Century - A Look at the Issues with a Great Video | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Whenever schools look at BYOD (or BYOT) there are pros and cons. This post provides links to a number of resources that discuss the advantages and limitations and includes an excellent (and enjoyable) short video that presents a quick pedagogical look at BYOD in the 21st century. Well worth watching in my opinion.

For BYOD Best Practices, Secure Data, Not Devices

For BYOD Best Practices, Secure Data, Not Devices | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

IT organizations are justifiably concerned about the security risks inherent in bringing your own device (BYOD). Many are turning to mobile device management (MDM) products and services to address the problem. But a number of mobile security vendors believe organizations are focusing the device when they should be focusing on the data.

Karen Ellis's curator insight, February 1, 2015 10:07 PM

I think it is increasingly important for students to use their own devices in the classroom.  It is what they will use for learning when they are travelling home from class and when they are working on class work or assignments.  It just makes good sense.

"homogenization of devices allows everyone the chance to start out on the same footing, but eventually schools need to open up and let students own the device and, inevitably, own their learning."

Teaching & Learning - Cell Phones in Class: A Student Survey - Magna Publications | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Cell phones in the classroom—it’s a topic that generates much consternation among faculty. Are policies that prohibit their use enforceable? Are students texting in class? If so, how many? If a student is texting, does that distract other students? Are students using their phones to cheat? Are there any ways cell phones can be used to promote learning? The questions are many and the answers are still a long way from definitive.
